Children and Families

We warmly welcome children and families to visit AGWA and explore ALL the exhibitions, collections and interactive experiences together.

Gallery 9 hosts a year round artist-led participatory exhibition series that invites families to interact and engage. See more about Artist Activations.

Boorongur
18 March - 4 December 2022 | FREE

Boorongur (Totem), in collaboration with Sharyn Egan, provides a shared space for audiences to consider a personal plant or animal totem, and contribute to the accumulation of families of small raffia and wool creatures.

Sharyn Egan invites children and families to think about multi-species relationships and care for environments where human and non-human species cohabit. Elaino Megalania, a sculpture made from natural materials of a megafauna skeleton belonging to an animal alive at the time of the First Australians on the continent, will also be exhibited in the space.
